icon About

I don't need to manufacture trauma in my life to be creative. I have a big enough reservoir of sadness or emotional trauma to last me.



As we encounter life, things happen to us. These experiences affect many. It is beneficial to learn what affects trauma can have on us.

In this course, we introduce you to several forms of trauma. As an adult, a coach, a teacher, a role model, or a caregiver, we need to understand the effects of trauma.

What can appear as silly, or that someone may be overreacting may not be a response that builds trust or is respectful as trauma is a very individualized response. Our judgment can cause them to shut down, become non-trusting, or worse.

In the second lesson, we included a webinar we did during the COVID shut down. Our special guest, U.S. Marine Derek Hines, who Bob used to coach, shares his insights into the trauma and how it has affected him.

We hope you enjoy the information as we know it will help make sense of some things that haven’t. It is our responsibility as caregivers of the young people of today that we can see their suffering. That we can support them and help them heal and grow.

Learning Objectives :

Here are numbers to call if you ever become triggered during the course. This information may cause emotional pain you as you watch. It is important to be able to recognize that you are becoming emotional and ground yourself back to the present moment, or use one of the resources listed here.
Grounding yourself could be rubbing your hands together or on your thighs. Making sure that you come back to the present moment. Snapping a rubber band on your wrist or getting up and moving, can help you get out of the emotional spiral that occurs when we become triggered.
